    de-wipering

    thinking of de-wipering the rear of my mk4 van.

    1. will it get through m.o.t okay without the wiper?
    2. what size hole will it leave? im just going to put a plastic or rubber grommit in place.

    Rear wiper isn't required for MOT AFAIK.

    definately not needed as some cars don't even have rear wipers.
